As firefighters, it's important to take great concern with this, since heart disease continues to be the leading cause in firefighter deaths.
We want to take a few minutes to go over some ways to keep your health at the forefront of your mind. Your job, saving lives, is important! But in order to do that safely and effectively, you must also be healthy.
Here are some tips from healthy-firefighter.org:
